Ate here 2x, both at the bar. Nice atmosphere, good food, pleasant staff. Faro salad was a big hit, entrees are nouvelle size so you can't split them. Good selection.

I went here with my sister as I was dropping her off for school one evening (we live in Marin) and the food was spectacular as was the service. You must get the salume board - it is phenomenal.

When returning from Italy, this restaurant seems to be able to provide one of the more authentic food experiences. While it does have limited menu which does not seem to change all that much, all is quite good. Not a large place and it may...More

My daughter and I had dinner at Corso's and enjoyed the homemade pasta. The service was friendly (perhaps a bit rushed) and the mushroom appetizers were excellent. A great place to go for a relaxing northern Italian dinner. We'll definitely be back!
